Suppose a space station is constructed as a 1000m-diameter cylinder that rotates about its axis. What rotation period will provide "normal" gravity?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is the work I have for this.

angular velocity = 9.8

r = 500m

2pi500/T = 9.8

2pi500/9.8 = T

T = 320.57

What did I do wrong?
